Last night I started reading Love in the time of cholera by Gabriel García Márquez. I’m now half way through it, and honestly, when I think about it I have trouble grasping the fact that this masterpiece is so young. This novel is about my age, and it has already become a classic! I’ve read a few works by Márquez before, like One hundred years of solitude and No one writes to the colonel among others, but this is the first time I’m reading Love in the time of cholera. I don’t know why it has taken me so long to get my hands on this cult novel.
